About our partners for this event:
Independent Sector (IS) advocates for public policies that impact the charitable sector, builds knowledge on behalf of the sector, and connects organizations and leaders within the sector. The Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA) is a diverse community of scholars, educators, and practice leaders who work to strengthen the field of charity, nonprofit and philanthropic research to improve civil society and human life. Clearly, our two organizations have a lot in common! This is why it makes so much sense to collaborate.
The mission of Nonprofit Policy Forum (NPF) is to serve as an international journal that publishes original research and analysis on public policy issues and the public policy process critical to the work of nonprofit organizations. NPF provides a forum and an authoritative and accessible source of information for scholars, leaders, and policy-makers worldwide. A primary goal of NPF is to provide nonprofit leaders and policy-makers with readily accessible and relevant scholarly research. In addition to being an accessible source of information, NPF creates a publishing venue for the expanding population of nonprofit-public policy scholars. Because the field of nonprofit studies is interdisciplinary in nature, the range of disciplines for both authors and readers spans a wide array of interests.
